Based on the popular ’80s action drama, the reboot will follow a younger version of Agent Angus MacGyver (Lucas Till). George Eads and Justin Hires will co-star.
Apparently, Wan was hired to direct the original pilot before being replaced by David Von Ancken. Now, Wan will return to direct a new version of the pilot even though CBS has already picked up the show to series. Till and Eads will be the only actors from the original pilot featuring in the reshoot. Hires, who was cast earlier this week, will play MacGyver’s roommate Wilt Bozer.
Despite the reshoot and the recasting, MacGyver is still scheduled to premiere this fall on CBS.
What do you think? Did you watch the original MacGyver series? Will you watch the reboot?
